Gay Leading Man

Recently I have been watching Torchwood: Miracle Day. It has something to do with Dr. Who which I have never gotten into but this show is something I’m enjoying and I might see if I can buy some earlier series to watch when I’m done with this.

One thing in this series is that one of the major characters (Captain Jack Harkness) is gay. The episode I watched last night shows him going into a gay bar and picking up the bar tender.

I know this is a British show but it is still pretty mainstream.

How long before a mainstream American sitcom has a gay character? I think it is funny also that Captain Jack is a masculine/tough guy as well.

Let me know what you are thinking mate.....
